Tell us your name. Cath Barber
How and when did you first start running? I joined Stroud Athletic Club when my first job took me down to Gloucestershire and I started sitting still more but still consuming vast amounts of biscuits… excersis was needed! There was a bloke called Jim who lead a ‘steady’ group. I’ve channeled him ever since.
What brought you to Nidd Valley? Ran once with Harriers, decided there must be something better, turned out I was right!
When did you join Nidd Valley? October 2015
What is your favourite running music? Genre or specific tracks? I don’t listen to music, mostly because of the tech faf needed, and my pace would be all over the shop. I much prefer to talk to others, or enjoy the quiet of the countryside.
What is your favourite food before and after running? Before: Toasted bagel, rice pudding or toast. After: literally anything, I mainly run because of chips and beer…
What is your best running tip that you would like to share with us? Uphill: knees up, chin up
Downhill: arms out, brain off
Generally: Pick your feet up
